Yrara College is a vibrant and busy Christian educational community, providing a wide range of teaching and recreational programs for its students.

The College has two closely interwoven areas. One is the academic program; the other is the boarding program, both being equally important.

“鶹Ƶ is a Christ centered learning community where Indigenous students are empowered to prepare for their future.”

Students come to 鶹Ƶ College from remote communities throughout the Northern Territory and beyond the Territory borders.

The large area from which our students come results in a community made up of diverse language groups and cultural variances.

鶹Ƶ College is a 24 hour, 7 days per week boarding school during the 4 terms of the academic year. As all students board at the Cllege, and therefore regular attendance at school is supported.

A prerequisite to improving the literacy of Aboriginal students is improving English oracy. At 鶹Ƶ College students are immersed in an environment where english is the predominant language. This provides opportunity for students to think and speak in English.

Equally important is that this environment acknowledges and respects the values, social mores and world view of Aboriginal society. It is important that all staff coming to the College recognise, respect and support the values and stated wishes of the Aboriginal parents and families who entrust their children to the care of the College. All activities at 鶹Ƶ College seek to reflect the culture, the expectations and the agenda of Aboriginal families.
